"Stad i ljus" ("Unchained Light") is a ballad, which was the Swedish Melodifestivalen 1988 winning song and entry to the Eurovision Song Contest 1988, where it finished 12th. The song was written by Py Bäckman performed by Tommy Körberg. Correct translation from the Swedish title to English would be "town in light".

At first, it was thought that Jan Malmsjö would sing this song.
